South Australia Red Tape report

The South Australian Government (Competitiveness Council) released a report on action taken in 2010-2011 to reduce red tape for business at the state level. The programme sets out to cut administrative burdens by $150 million a year. The first tranche finished $18 million ahead of target and the second (to be completed by April 2012) is ahead of schedule.
Regulatory costs to the broader community are also to be addresse. Also of note at the South Australian level: in December 2010, a Better Regulation Handbook was issued to all agencies in order to improve transparency in reviewing and designing regulation. (tip from S. Trnka).
